Gifting on IMVU
When someone sends a message to another IMVU user, they have the option of sending that person a gift. Before they send the gift, though, they must choose a ‘gift wrap’. Gift wrap is the graphic that appears behind the catalog image and name in a gift message.
There are dozens of Gift Wraps in the ‘Wrapping’ list.
How do Gift Wraps get created?
Gift Wraps are made by Creators and sent to IMVU for inclusion in the list. However, there is no formal process for submitting new Gift Wraps. Rather, IMVU frequently runs contests and events around new Gift Wrap inclusion.
The submission process for Gift Wrap is simple. When a Gift Wrap event or contest occurs, that event or contest will contain an email address to which you can email your finished Gift Wrap image.
There are some specifics about Gift Wrap creation that you must know in advance of creating one. Here is the list:

Along with the technical specs, a Gift Wrap must also meet some other criteria.
Occasionally, IMVU removes Gift Wraps that have not been used in a while. So, although a Gift Wrap may be accepted as part of a contest or event, that does not mean it will live on forever
